Back to basics a bit here, with an old fashioned banjo waltz backed by some quartal harmony and a 3Hz beat. A sleepy tune, sweet dreams this time. Topics: banjo, bluegrass, new age, trance, experimental, ambient

A tune oriented toward a short meditation. Also, a return to first principles and a thought for what has been done. Analyses revealed a several beats on this one, but the target beat is 5Hz. Close your eyes. Keep the volume low. Let the beat do its thing. Topics: banjo, folk, acoustic, experimental, electronica, bluegrass, ambient, trance
